Honduran Embassy in Spain Honors President of the Spanish International Cooperation Agency

The Honduran Embassy in Spain has granted Miguel Angel Cortés, President of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation, with the Orden Civil de José Cecilio del Valle en el Grado de Gran Cruz Placa de Oro award for the aid his organization has provided on behalf of the Spanish people.

The award is the highest civilian honor granted by the Honduran government. In addition to serving as President of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation, Cortés is the Secretary General for International Cooperation in Ibero-America.

The award was given by Ambassador Aníbal Quiñonez, Vice minister of Foreign Relations. Also present was Honduran Ambassador to Spain Leila Odeh de Scott.

Cortés said he was honored to receive the award, both on behalf of himself, as well as the government ministry he presides. He also praised Honduran President Ricardo Maduro for his efforts to promote the integration of Central America.

Ambassador Quiñónez spoke of the strong ties that link Spain and Ibero-America and said the award, named after Jose Cecilio del Valle, a man who fought for Pan-American principles, is an excellent reflection of the goals of the Spanish International Cooperation Agency, which works to provide non-refundable assistance to those who need it.

The award ceremony was held at the Hotel Ritz in Madrid before an audience of government officials, diplomats, NGO representatives and members of development agencies.
